About this Item: IPS, USP in association with B.P. Bishop Museum, 1993. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 74 pp., illustrations, bibliography, index. The pre-Christian history of Mangaia -- the southernmost of the Cook Islands -- was documented by Sir Peter Buck (Te Rangi Hiroa) in Mangaian Society, in 1934. Missing from the book was the final chapter, which documented changes in Mangaian society following the establishment of a London Missionary Society mission in 1824. That final chapter is published here for the first time. Buck describes changes to the social, economic, religious and political life of the island resulting from the mission. As spiritual power passed from the Mangaian gods to Jehovah, the marae were deserted, the images of the gods destrooyed or given up, history and genealogy were modified in Biblical terms, restrictions placed on the sexual lives of young people and an oppressive system of mission laws -- the Blue Laws -- introduced to police behaviours. Dance, drama, music and traditional sports were outlawed or abandoned. But, as Buck points out, none of this was achieved without Mangaian participation, if only as accommodation, adaption or resistance to change. Mangaia and the Mission provides new insights into the history of relations between the mission and the people of Mangaia, and provides further evidence to question the view that Pacific cultures succumbed passively to mission domination. 0.0.

About this Item: Paris, 1785. originalKupferstich von ca. 1785 - aus dem Atlas von James Cook's dritter Reise | original copper engraving from circa 1785 out of the atlas from James Cook's third voyage - Blattmasse ca.20,5 x27 cm - gut erhalten. - good condition. | | -------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ---------------------------------------------------- Cook's Third Voyage (1776-1779) During his first and second voyage, Cook circumnavigated the globe twice. He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti. They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. When he returned to Hawaii for the winter, he was killed in an encounter with natives on February 14, 1779. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Both ships returned to England in 1780, commanded by John Gore who had taken over the Discovery after Cook's death. The voyage had lasted a total of more than four years from start to finish. James Cook James Cook was born on 7 November 1728 in the Yorkshire village Marton. His father was a poor Scottish farm labourer, who had worked his way up to supervisor. James also began as a farm labourer and grocer's assistant. Soon he found employment in a Collier on the Baltic Sea. During the Seven Year's War in 1755, he volunteered for service and enlisted as an able seaman on the Eagle. He was promoted to master's mate under Captain Joseph Hamar within a month due to his outstanding ability. About four years later he had passed his master's examinations. James Cook, commanding his own ship, performed a very crucial charting and mapping of the Saint Lawrence River making the great amphibious assult upon Quebec City in 1759 possible. He was given command of the schooner Grenville in 1763 to survey the eastern coasts of Canada over a four year periode. These excellent charts were used up until the early 20th century. In 1768 James Cook was selected to lead an expedition to observe the transit of Venus as well as to explore new lands in the Pacific Ocean. In his first Pacific voyage, he rounded Cape Horn in the Endeavour reaching Tahiti on 3 June 1769. The transit of Venus was successfully observed after recovering a necessary scientific instrument stolen by the natives. The Endeavour then spent six months charting New Zealand. Next Cook explored and claimed possession of eastern Australia. The crew suffered an appalling 43% fatality rate after returning to England, on 12 June 1771, via New Guinea, Java and the Cape of Good Hope. James Cook thus became very concerned about crew health on subsequent voyages. He instituted compulsory dietary reforms that were copied by several other ship captains. The reason of Captain Cook's second Pacific Ocean. Seller Inventory # 148115
